Publisher's Summary

The year is 1995, and an energetic senator wants to disarm, perhaps even eliminate, the CIA. To accumulate the evidence necessary to persuade the Senate, he needs the cooperation of Blackford Oakes, now retired. He wants from Oakes an account of his covert activity 10 years earlier, when Oakes served as chief of covert activities for the CIA. But, what will the frustrated senator do to compel cooperation from Blackford Oakes?

A Very Private Plot takes the listener inside the Kremlin and the Reagan White House, exhibiting a detailed knowledge and savoir-faire characteristic of the author. The forces unleashed in 1985 threaten any resolution between the United States and the Soviet Union and threaten the lives of a very small unit of young Russians who remain in the memory as the tale reaches a climax.

    "Political Suspense"

    When suspense and politics are rolled into one then it's Buckley, Jr. Good stuff.
